We are looking for a few good men

fbi logoCalling all men who have an interest in making a difference in our children’s lives!

We are so grateful to have so many involved parents and grandparents at KCSMA.  We see the effect it has on the students and love how their eyes light up and they stand taller when they are greeted by one of our volunteers.

In the mornings before school, our PTO Co-President Greg Maloney has been performing hallway duty.  He greets the students, and already, Mrs. Frey has said she can see the difference in how the students react when they enter the school.  Although students love their teachers and the staff, there is something special about being greeted by one of our enthusiastic volunteers.

Our FBI group (Fathers Being Involved) has taken a backseat to other PTO priorities, but we feel it is important to get it going again.  We would like to start out by having any interested adult male* KCSMA family or friends spending time greeting the students each morning.  All it will require is a few minutes each morning (any time you can spare between 7:00am and 7:45am) to say hello and give an encouraging nod or high five to students.

If you are interested, please let us know.  We will have special FBI name badges made up in the next few days.  You would just need to sign in at the office.  Email if you are interesting in helping chair this committee, we would love to hear from you.  More info can be found here.

*We recognize and appreciate the female volunteers in our school.  There is compelling evidence, though, that having male role models have a direct influence on student success.  We are looking to encourage our KCSMA men to take an active role.
